Sixteen dogs die in house fire

October 3, 2012

A house fire on the near northwest side of Indianapolis killed 16 dogs, including 13 puppies, early Wednesday morning. The fire broke out about 1 a.m. in the 1200 block of West 35th Street. The homeowner, Sarah Fulford, and her children escaped without injuries, but the puppies were kept near the laundry room, where the fire started. Fire officials say a lint fire in the dryer is the likely cause.
